Two catalogue essays for Venice

(1) 'And That is What Happened Here': an experimental essay comprising interviews with the participants of Hirschhorn's Bijlmer-Spinoza Festival (Amsterdam, 2009), published to accompany Hirschhorn's Crystal of Resistance installation in the Swiss Pavilion at Venice. This was done in great haste so there are many flaws; more work should have been done looking at ethnographic field studies before embarking on this text.

(2) 'Zones of Indifferentiation': an excerpt from my forthcoming book, Artificial Hells, focusing on the work of Collective Actions Group. Published to accompany the presentation of Andrey Monastyrsky in the Russian pavilion at Venice, curated by Boris Groys.
